Boombot Design Constraints

Boombot speakers are built with meticulous industrial design characteristics for function and acoustic performance.  Designs should not do anything to interfere with the acoustic performance of the product.  We do not typically change mechanical components on our products unless it is implemented throughout our entire product line.

There are several processes for applying graphics onto Boombot speakers.  We typically use water transfer to apply pattern and texture graphics.  Pad printing is used for stamping graphics on product.  Each method has some restrictions, but the two methods can also be used in combination to offer artists the most graphic freedom.  As a rule of thumb, if you are using a pattern, you should include source art that is at least 1000p x 1000p as vector art.  With pad printing, keep in mind that simplicity is going to be the most feasible and smaller graphics will work easier than larger ones.  Units can also be hand painted, but this increases production costs significantly.

In pad printing, avoid designing around the sharper lines of the product.  Think of pad printing as a stamp that is applied to a surface.  The stamp can bend around some soft contours but cannot form around sharper ones.

Denon Cocoon gives Sonos a run for their money

Is it just me or is this CG product render to dubstep music become the standard way to introduce some “groundbreaking” product?  I suppose that is one way you can attempt to give all of these amorphous blobs hitting the market a little more personality.  Sometimes I worry that we’ve hit this age where industrial design has become scared to make a line or curve and we’re going to have to have a shape renaissance.  Groundbreaking or not, the Cocoon likely thumps the floor to the tune of 100 watts.  Sonos might wanna keep an eye out as the Denon Cocoon incorporates Wifi connectivity in the at-home version.

There’s nothing ultraportable about this thing, and the thought of having some mud and beer splash on there makes me cringe.  We’ll stick to our speakers.
